During orientation, you will have a great opportunity to establish relationships with your academic deans, advisors, faculty, and many University departments.
You will also learn how to find your way around campus, as well as how to take advantage of our on-campus resources. Most importantly, you will have a chance to meet fellow incoming students and current student leaders who you will build friendships with that can last forever.
Please note that Orientation is REQUIRED for all new students.
Please note that in order to register for Orientation, you must have paid your deposit. View the New Student Guide Checklist for deposit deadline and other important information.
The first portion of New Student Orientation begins with our online program. First, you must register for your on-campus orientation date. Then one week before your on-campus orientation, you will receive an e-mail with instructions on completing online orientation.
Both the online and the on-campus portions of Orientation are required.
New Student Orientation on the Staten Island campus will be Thursday, August 29 and Friday, August 30. Resident students will be able to move-in on Wednesday, August 28.
